who will a check of point those injuries and work out a list of a dozen people were the most severe ones to bring them to moscow for special treatment the blast happened during a wedding ceremony and here in russia's north caucasus weddings are big celebrations and usually are not less than three hundred guests are invited for this type of ceremonies and the food is being cooked outside in special councils that's why it requires gas canister east and one of these gas canister used exploded and seriously injuring a significant number of people and for this very well saying over four hundred guests were invited but at the time of the blast only one hundred were present in the yard near the residential area so the scale of this accident could have been bigger. turning now to some other stories making headlines across the globe three blasts have been heard at a police station under attack by militants in northwest pakistan at least ten officers were reportedly killed some two dozen others believed to be trapped inside
the compound just the latest assault in recent weeks involving the teams of armed insurgents targeting security forces the pakistani taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack saying it was in revenge for the killing of osama bin laden. in sudan at least al levon people have died after a militia group allegedly allied to the northern government attacked a southern town hosts tens of thousands of refugees displaced by fighting southern officials say the attacks are part of a plan by the north to take over oil rich areas in the south before it gains independence next month both sides ended more than two decades of civil war in two thousand and five that claim more than two million lives. fifteen people have been killed in a nato air strike on civilian sites according to libyan state television more than twenty others were reportedly hurt by the attack in the eastern town of breda the t.v. report didn't specify exactly when the assault happened the alliance has rejected

couldn't take three. three. three. three. three. videos. of free media don carty don tom. thanks for staying with us here on our t.v. fifteen minutes past four am here in moscow the promised land of the jews israel is now facing an exodus of its own tens of thousands of fled the country over the past
few years with many others thinking of packing their bags as archie's powerlessly reports fears over security issues forced many israelis to seek safe haven abroad. rachel shites has no reason to like germany she was born a before the second world war within six years have been expelled and most of her family killed but the irony is she now wants a german passport. get money i want the german citizenship to help my children and grandchildren which might be shocking if it wasn't so common in israel today in the last decade some fifty thousand israelis have applied for us citizenship a quarter of a million already have a second passport it's unlikely that any other country in the world has such a large percentage of new immigrants preparing to leave. the story because he was a stubborn to become a shoe in. europe because the. sleeve is.
left of my face the american heart of tel aviv here you'll hear more english than hebrew and you'll be forgiven for thinking oh if you're in the us and not the promised land most israelis here have a second passport many of them grew up abroad or have a parent who came from another country. and i would never give them a canadian and probably would give up my israeli and american i wouldn't give up because i have family. i want to go to go there any time british passport or your password is a doorway to opportunities eight years ago the bar was blown up by a suicide bomber three people were killed and fifty injured the bar didn't close down but some say the rush for new passports heated up in very because of the bombings when there was a feeling of insecurity so yes there was an increase both in immigration and in the demand for passports and that demand has only grown in the last five years israel has been in two walls and many fear another is not far off and the government's
policy of settlement expansion has only isolated the country internationally so it's no surprise is eating israeli journalist gideon levy that people are tired of living in a war zone. releasing its own creating all the. fear for and. against anything and the payoff is a population that feels unsafe with one eye on europe. ganesan has processed nearly five thousand applications for a second passport in the last ten years that works out at about forty passports a month and he's only one lawyer working in the field but in world war two the one who are were the one who got the library both thought. that if you can go. can help you move. out of danger zone then you do it every year more jews leave israel for europe and the skates then the
other way around one in five or so if you choose has a week returned home and with no israeli palestinian peace talks on the horizon and growing israeli and security of our demonstrations on the doorstep this so-called insurance passport is unlikely to lose popularity any time soon points leader r.t. television. news for the economy has fewer power between with layoffs austerity and growing u.s. national debt some are staying optimistic saying things could be worse as our resident on the streets of new york. all the latest data indicates the global economy is going limp are you personally affected this week let's talk about that have you felt the effects of a bad economy need a better job this economy is not a better job yes i try to go to college and i can't because car my car gas
is all expensive at school so expensive so it's on the vicious cycle is really bad but i'm happy because brazil is growing like for me. so is that kind of the way because when some countries are hurting other countries can prosper more yeah greece is looking bad spain is looking bad i feel like we're on the right. so they're just exaggerating not in greece and spain no no i feel like reports in the u.s. or i'm actually in the military so i feel that at all that's the only per anum one perk my job i've been getting steady paychecks for five years yeah i can see that the american military is going to go out of it if they do any time soon and i guess we have bigger problems to worry about the economy. but we have to come back even more so we can take cruises you come to new york this. crucial british air force time in new york city today so that doesn't sound like you're hurting that it sounds like you're doing ok we have to cut back on
a lot of other things you think that we've seen the bottom of this crisis or are we headed for bread lines and even worse things we've seen the bottom what is the bottom look like. well it was pretty bad during the great depression is a bottom that we can compare it to i don't know if we'll get that bad but i don't think we're there yet so do you think we can fix it i'm a global level or do you think it's time countries started looking at themselves first i think we have to fix it on the global level but i think we reach country have to lower the their expectations of. the living standard i think we all had to go down whether or not even personally impact the bottom line and the global economy apparently continues to fall flat. he was called the father of the bolshevik revolution and although highly debated his role in russia's history can't be underestimated a little later we retrace lennon's path in moscow.

who have to endure them to take safe harbor it was pretty bad it was there and it worked at least thirty to thirty but no it. was rolling around a bit had a bit of. get in between us. so we're rolling around. trying to make a good writer. as. the crew of this ship was able to pull through the temple stand even work with nearby stations to repair their damaged vessel but they were lucky operating in such a remote environment means that replacement parts aren't always available and the workers here have to make do with what they can and it's pretty hard to get here good equipment to get here sophisticated equipment so one challenge is to try to make your big science was a very small amount of. hearts and good friends is considered one of the most
dangerous environments on the planet and because of this operating down here. we're going to. be downright deadly during the same storm the crew from that little i'm ts base lost one of their team when a jeep wall down an embankment into a frigid antarctic lake. that was most difficult experience in my career and such moments i start to think that god just wants us to try us out here. but in antarctica time is a valuable commodity and work crews have limited time to prepare the base for winter after the accident happens we didn't even have time to make a stop was the moment required a stop to think to express compassion we have to go on with our work which we finished at about four am the next day the incident sparked an outpouring of international support from the surrounding bases but in a twist all too appropriate for the harsh realities of working in antarctica the chilean air force plane that was to. the body back to south america suffered an explosion in the left engine as it was taking off the pilots on board of hurting
another field tragedy matter of sentence still the southern continent doesn't provide the opportunity to dwell on the difficulties we're going to concede on the key things all problems as soon as possible or the opportunity will be lost when there is no immediate response to the precautions and avoid actions let me get one of those hurt for example when the airplane engine killed we have avoided doing anything that could have gotten any of us hurt in any way so we don't have the airlift anybody else here we have void in the wrists until another airplane arrives when you need a system derived from unfortunate necessity which keeps those living and working in the face of danger and safe is possible in antarctica shan thomas. there's plenty more videos and stories from shah's adventures across the antarctic on his blog and on our web site r t dot com. later today
